In this article the author, Stephanie Lovitz, explains how the government had
planned to spend 1.2 billion dollars on bringing Syrian refugees to Canada over a
period of 6 years. It explains that the government would need to spend over 800
million dollars just in 2016 – 2017 and that an additional 1.1 billion dollars would be
needed by the year 2021. This will help support my argument that the government
is spending too much money to bring Syrian refugees here as they will have to
double their budget.

scholarships to refugees.

In this article the author, Amanda Pheffer, explains how the CEO of the
National Association of Career colleges has 40 institutions that will offer Syrian
refugees free scholarships to many different colleges around Canada. This also
explains that the scholarships will be givin to the person in the family that will be
providing for that family. This well help to support my argument that the
government or schools are giving free scholarships to refugees and should start
providing this for Canadian Citizens that can’t afford them and are trying to provide
for a household.

This article, Fast Checks: Do refugees get more financial help than Canadian
pensioners, the author Sonja Puzic explains how the allegations that refugees get
more financial help than Canadian pensioners are false. Though it actually leads to
explain that the refugees are entitled to $768 dollars per month per refugee which
is roughly 100 dollars more per month than a single Canadian on welfare would get.
This will help support my argument that the government is actually giving the
refugees more money than a Canadian on welfare.

Miller. Jacquie (2015, November 26). Housing Shortage is first challenge for refugee

In this article, the author explains how there is a shortage of low income
housing for the refugees and that the current waiting list for a lot of these houses
are several years long. It also explains that there are a gross amount of 7,000
people in Ottawa not including the refugees that have been waiting for low income
housing. This article well help support my argument that cities are already
backlogged with Canadian people in poverty waiting for these houses and the
government should look at that before bringing so many refugees to Canada.
